In How to Revolutionize the AEC Industry Part 1, we looked at the massive impact that Building Information Modeling (BIM) is having in the field of architecture and engineering. The way that building projects are designed, managed, and constructed is evolving and with the rapid acceleration of collaboration technologies and virtual education, there is no better time than right now to build a career you’re passionate about.
The built world is changing; the houses we live in, the roads we drive on, the buildings people work in, the shopping centres we frequent, the communities we experience together.
But in order to truly revolutionize architecture, engineering, and construction, we can’t rely on technology alone.
This is why our communities, our cities, and our nations rely on people like you.
You – are how the AEC industry is revolutionized.
When your passion to make a difference for your family and your community combine with the right skills and opportunities, we all flourish together. This is why Digital School exists, to help prepare students for careers that transform.
You Can Learn To Design Anything
Digital School was created with the goal to provide an educational environment unlike any other; to pioneer a more effective way of learning. Because of this, we employ asynchronous strategies that enable maximum flexibility within our programs and result in better retention and skill development.
You can learn at your own pace, on your own schedule, and engage with your course work according to the way you learn best. Complex concepts are broken down into bite-size chunks, training is provided on-demand and available anytime, anywhere, and on any device. And subject matter expert support is available where you need it and when you need it.
This means that you can learn with confidence. You can accelerate through training content that comes easily, dive deeper into the areas that interest you, and slow the pace down to learn more advanced skills with expert instructors coaching you through each challenge.
With virtual education technology and the flexibility of online learning, you can build a training schedule that allows you to pursue a rewarding career while fulfilling your personal responsibilities at home and at your current workplace.
At Digital School, you can learn to design anything.
You Can Afford Digital School
As you consider training for a career in architecture or engineering design technology, we recognize that there are many factors in your decision. The ability to finance education and your opportunities to find a well-paying job afterward are two of the most important considerations.
Like all colleges, training for a career through Digital School is an investment. This is why our Admissions Advisors are trained to help you explore a range of funding options including payment plans, loans, provincial student assistance, grants, and sponsorships.
As an investment, it’s more important to look at the return rather than the cost. What this means is that your decision-making process should pay close attention to your ability to earn back your investment. One of the advantages to Digital School is how comprehensive our programs are. Because our programs can be completed in less than 12 months, you’ll be able to enter the workforce faster and start building your life-changing career with a higher-paying job, sooner.
Additionally, as a private career college in Alberta, Digital School is required to maintain graduation and job placement rates above 70%. What this means is that not only do we desire to see our students graduate and find meaningful employment, but we are held accountable to ensure that happens.
As we focus on helping our students achieve their career goals through our programs, we have built and continue to build relationships with reputable employers and provide our students with the career skills required to find a job and advance their career.
This brings us back to the investment. According to PayScale Canada, the programs offered at Digital School prepare students to anticipate salaries ranging from $42,000 to $94,000. When you consider the year over year impact of a higher salary, the one-time educational costs transform into a wise investment with a significant return.
